Mein Auto: E90 320d
I am also in south africa!

What car did you order?
Did you pay a deposit?
What dealer have you used?

The 325's are the only ones with a waiting list at the moment. I ordered a 320d in Sandton, and i am getting it late july (ordered it this week).
You could most likely just order another car, spec it how you want (with out the burl wallnut trim) and get it in july. The problem is, there might be another delay. Or phone the BMW customer service no and ask them?


Best advice...just wait it out?

Mein Auto: 325i
Flash, I too have a 325 on order for expected delivery in 2-3 weeks.
I've ordered from Autobahn BMW in JHB, and they have told me there's a problem with the wood trim, but they haven't said the car is going to be delayed (yet!).
I can't believe that it could possibly delay delivery 'till August - this would make me go absolutely nuts!
Surely they can find some woodtrim somewhere in the world - or will all BMW's all over the world be delayed by 2 months...I don't think so!

That's what makes me so furious about business in SA - the attitude of total apathy and the apparant inefficiency.
Let's hope and pray that it's not true this time...
